Canadian library strike enters week 2


About 180 Regina Public Library workers start their second week on strike this morning amidst concerns board members aren\’t getting a complete report on the status of stalled contract talks.

\”I\’m very concerned the library board hasn\’t gotten our message,\” said Canadian Union of Public Employees spokesperson Mike Keith on Monday evening . . .

Workers will continue to picket today, which is National Book Day, and they plan to have a \”read-in\” all day outside the Central Library and all afternoon at the Glen Elm branch.

\”The library is a learning organization and obviously our members love books. We thought as a theme day a read-in will be a good thing.\”
